Sivers Semiconductors and KREEMO have announced the successful development of the first high-performance 5G module with 360 degree coverage for the metaverse. The 5G module, optimized for the metaverse, takes advantage of technologies by both companies. These technologies include the SUMMIT2629, Siver Semiconductor’s 28GHz beamforming integrated circuit and KREEMO’s 360o antenna technology. The announcement was made at MWC, where HTC Vive also announced its upcoming metaverse.
Siver’s SUMMIT2629 offers high transmission power while offering low power consumption in comparison to other beamforming ICs. Utilizing two antennas that stack atop one another, KREEMO’s 360o antenna technology provides full 360 degree coverage as well as dual-polarization.
“KREEMO has developed this module in record time. With this 5G module optimized for the metaverse, Sivers Semiconductors enters for the first time into consumer applications,” said Anders Storm, Group CEO of Sivers Semiconductors, “We are very pleased to do this together with KREEMO, that offers best in class technology in this area. We are looking forward to working with KREEMO on multiple projects going forward.”
Competition for the 5G Module
KREEMO and Sivers aren’t the only companies working on 5G platforms. Intersec is looking to implement its 5G Geolocation platform globally. Likewise, Ethlas has secured $2.7 million in funding for a PC and mobile play-to-earn metaverse. Nokia is working on 5G Advanced, which will act as a stepping stone for 6G. In related news, HTC Vive is partnering with Holoride to bring location-based VR experiences to car passengers.
According to a press release, the 5G module consumes less power than competing products and smoothly transmits in any direction. The high-performance 5G module also boosts broadband high-capacity transmissions and eliminates shadow areas.
“Through the development of this module, we plan to take the lead in the market by providing 5G devices and infrastructure solutions for metaverse services,” says CEO of KREEMO, John Park, “We will continue to work together to create more innovative products using Sivers Semiconductors BFICs and KREEMO’s 360o antenna technology.”
